January 10, 2007 Apple iPhone – Looking Very Good
Get the QuickTime plugin and jump here to see the demos:
The user interface is looking very good indeed. All the unnecessary junk is removed letting the user concentrate solely to the task in hand.
There’s not too much data visible at one time, only the context.
Small visual cues like horizontal scrolling and zoom effects aid the user in keeping track of his/her location in the UI. They keep the experience flowing and seamless.
They’ve even added sensors for determining the device’s position. Very clever.
This is how technology should work; quietly and hidden in the background.
If it all functions as advertised (do they ever?) and the batteries last, it will be a damn good device.
